With Ireland getting ever more popular as a destination for Cruise Ships, we have over 80 cruise ships docking in Dublin alone in 2015. Not to mention Cork (Cobh), Belfast & Waterford.
Private shore excursions have fast become a popular way of exploring the port cities and their surrounds. More & more cruise ship passengers are opting for private tours of Ireland with their own driver-guide to make the most of the time they have in each port and to keep ahead of the cruise ship coach tours and of course get all the insights and expertise that having your own private guide gives you.
At Ireland by Locals all our drivers are Failte Ireland (Irish tourist board) approved and badged tour guides. Our vehicles are fully insured and licensed for private hire. The vehicles we use will depend on the size of your party, but we use Range Rover’s, Mercedes Sedans & Mercedes Mini Vans which can seat up to 6 people.
With Ireland by locals you will not only see the main attractions on the tour you pick, but you will also see parts of Dublin & Ireland that the coach tours can’t reach.
